Today sees the classic N64 game Banjo Kazooie hit the Xbox Live Arcade and for me it could not be a better holiday season than this one. For 1200 Points you get a brilliant platformer that was one of the best games of the late 90’s rivaling Tomb Raider and Donkey Kong 64!

A must buy!

I was in pure excitement all day at work yeaterday in anticipation of the NXE, so when i got home at 6:30 i cranked up the 360 and downloaded the update and i was pleased to see the new dashboard and the Avatars.

It was so so simple to create my Avatar although i wish there were more clothing options as i always wear a beenie hat indoors but hey hopefully Rare are making some more additions.

As for the Marketplace, i was disappointed with the fact that i kept getting several error codes when i was trying to browse but im sure that it was overloaded.

I found the party mode brilliant as i had two of my mates into my party and we chatted, something a lot of people have been wanting since day one.

Here is my avatar hope you like it lol

One of the great features of the NXE is the removal of zero score games from your profile!

Thank God!

From my old ‘Gamerscore Whore’┬ádays i have had several games that i want to shamefully remove from my profile like Rumble Roses, Devil May Cry 4, Totemball etc. Roll on Wednesday!

What are your thoughts to the removal of the zero score games?

It will not be long before we see the NXE or New Xbox Experience come to life this upcoming Wednesday.

I for one have been really looking foward to this since it was unveiled at E3 way back in July. The major feature of Avatars and the new way of partying up with mates is fabulous!!!

MyGamercard.net have the new gamercards which will let you have your avatar on them or even use your avatar as your old gamer picture.

Surely now the Xbox 360 is the best next gen console now with 3 great price ranges and unbeatable bundles this christmas compared to both the Wii and the PS3!

Get Buying!

I cannot wait as Sonic 3 and Sonic and Knuckles are lon overdue for the XBLA!

After playing Gears of War 2 non stop since Thursday i have completed the story mode on Hardcore and completed Hoarde up to wave 50. It is safe to say that this is heaps better that the first one and ten times better than GTA IV!

I know that there are a few multiplayer issues like matchmaking and soe weapons being super powerful compared to others but you cant knock the sheer brilliance of the graphics nor the gameplay(especially Hoarde) that is so addictive.

One great feature is the Screenshot mode and as you will see at the end of this post i have included all of my pictures of my gaming exploits over Xbox Live.

Enjoy
